Learn about Factice

In the nineteenth century a lady possessed her own scent bottle which was refilled by the pharmacist or perfumier as required. With the advent of perfume being sold in bottles produced by the manufacturers, there arose the need to market the product, and thus a marketing version of each scent bottle was required. These bottles are known as factices, and they are generally loaned to the store by the manufacturer for display, and then returned. They are usually replicas of the product they represent, but in many cases are 10 or 20 times larger so they catch the eye of the customer. A factice is not usually filled with perfume but with a substitute such as coloured water.
